of wisconsin if they had just had some voter i.d. laws. right? president obama won wisconsin with more than 205,000 votes. that's a lot of people to suppress in order to make a sure romney absolutely would win type situation. don't you think? one of the most outrageous post-election comments about minority voters came from the chairman of the state of maine. their republican party up there. charlie webster, he questioned the mere presence of african-american voters at the polls. >> in some parts of the state, for example, in some parts of rural maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted election day. everybody has a right to vote, bull but nobody in town knows anybody who's black. how did that happen? we don't know. we're going to find out. >> webster tried to explain himself to talking points memo. "when you see a lot of black people, a lot of people who are black like six or eight or ten people you think, wow, where do they live? that was my point. there's nothing about me that would be discriminatory. i know black people. i play basketball every sunday with a blac

it in his pants, therefore, obama must be impeached obviously. >> stephanie: yeah right george bush appointed--yeah that's obama's fault. >> and that eric cantor didn't say anything about that, even though you knew something about it but didn't leave his--never mind. >> stephanie: diane in chicago. hi diane. >> caller: how are you this morning? >> stephanie: good go ahead. >> caller: john mccain has post election syndrome like sometimes it may not hit them until four years later and this is what is happening with him. so you know-- >> stephanie: normally you get too hold to old to hold a grudge? i'm too old to care about anything. >> no, they don't. no, they don't. he's thinking, oh, i should have reacted like this four years ago. let me get them now. >> stephanie: exactly. it gets worse and worse. you think he'll be over this by now. i think i'm--would you love to be a fly on the wall in his living room election night? he's the angriest dog in the world because it further validated obama. it was not a fluke. >> i'm sure he might have even wanted to hit something. >> stephanie: inte
$699. stuart: president obama meeting with congressional leaders right now. rich edson is there at the white house. i suspect he may be wasting your time a little. i don't think there'll be any kind of a deal until the last week of december or even new year's eve. >> have to agree with you on that one. i think i will be standing right here in a month and a half talking about the same thing except a little bit more sense of urgency and possibly a little sense. stuart: by the way, we saw the photo op with the president with john boehner, take it the senate democrats are there as well, they are all there? >> at his house minority leader nancy pelosi, harry reid, treasury secretary, vice president and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. stuart: they will be in that spot until the end of the year. another report on government race, the defense department spending $6 billion on nonmilitary research. projects in a million on things like jesus hating fictional space aliens and developing a rollup version. this is the defense department, this is the pentagon. >> we have alwa
with john mccain and the way the rest of congress is viewing him on this? >> right. so you've been covering this well in the sense that republicans are not used to the obama administration pushing back. they're not used to the obama coming with a fire in the belly and really confronting them on accusations and insinuations that they've been launching for the last four years without a lot of resistance, without a lot of contradiction. let's remember the politicization of the benghazi issue started with the mitt romney campaign, on the night of the attack. he then harangued the entire republican caucus into joining him on that. now the mitt romney campaign is gone leaving guys like john mccain holding the bag. he's committed to the strategy and has to go forward. now that president obama called him out on public television during a press conference, he has no choice but to double down. and stories like these where he missed the hearing that he was calling for undermine his argument that the obama administration is not giving him enough information. and pushes him back into the argument the ob
. >>> developing now from the white house president obama and congressional leaders right now meeting behind closed doors for negotiations on the so-called fiscal cliff, something that both sides want to avoid but the big question, how much are they willing to give? here's what the president said within the last hour just before the bargaining began. >> our challenge is to make sure that, you know, we are able to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the people's business and what the folks are looking for and i think all of us agree on this is action. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house. give us a brief on the expectations going in -- open minded or closed minded from both sides? >> reporter: well, i think both sides are definitely open minded but that is not to say there aren't huge hurdles that they have to get over in order to come to some sort of deal to avoid the fiscal cliff which of course by all accounts if they cannot do that it could lead the economy back into a recession. there is certainly a lo
received the j.d. power and associates appeal award two years in a row. ♪ >>> all right. right now president obama, key congressional leaders from both parties are behind closed doors at the white house. they're trying to find ways to finally find some common ground and avoid the january 1st fiscal cliff when drastic spending cuts and massive tax increases would take effect. those in attendance, there are some guests along with congressional leaders. we understand nancy pelosi will be there, john boehner the speaker will be there. we understand some guests will be the vice president, of course minority leader mitch mcconnell will also be there. we also understand that during this discussion will be some tough questions obviously and that is about the tax cuts and what the top 2% will have to pay. here is what happened moments ago. take a listen. >> i want to welcome the congressional leadership here and thank them for their time. i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. we've got to make sure that taxes don't go up on middle class families, that our economy
conservative media had been saying about this. right? he believed some conservative thing that president obama never used the word terror when he described this attack. when, in fact, the president had. it led to that horrible fact checking moment, live fact checking in the debate. is john mccain, and these guys, dana warbaucher, gene schmidt, trying to make it into a political scandal, are they making the same mistake, they're pursuing a narrative circulating on the right but isn't based in fact? >> i'd add darrell issa on that. he held the hearings on benghazi a month before the election and bungled them. he released documents without even check with anyone. and the bottom line here is there are legitimate questions about the benghazi attack and a lot of information we haven't gotten but that's all become secondary to the sort of political fight between the republicans in congress who want to assert that they still have the control of the foreign policy issue, and they want to assert that obama's weak on foreign policy though the election is over and the actual responsible lawmakers who want
? this is "hardball" for now. "politics nation"ing with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. we are live from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, what winning looks like. president obama ran on fairness, and he's about to deliver. we're already seeing this president standing strong on the key issues that won this election. fairness. i was part of a group that met with him today at the white house. he is not backing down. he knows that making this a more fair country, protecting the middle class, is the central issue of our time he will ran on fighting for a system that works for everyone. where everyone gets a fair shot at the american dream. before our group of civic leaders met with the president, he met with the democratic and republican leaders. they know he has it the upper hand. they know he holds the cards in this fight. with the threat of the fiscal cliff looming, that -- when that happens, you're going to see a winner and a winner who won the national election. the republican leaders even the republican leaders seem to get that today. their words w
a deal and president obama thinks he has a legacy that he has to protect right now. have watched as democrats have picked up seats in the senate and the house and president obama has been reelected. they do not want to be seen as obstacles to a deal that pushes the economy into a better place. both sides have some political reason to do business right now. in the short term, there will be some kind of bridge. lori: speaking of that bridge in the republican, we did hear from john boehner once today. revenue has to be part of this deal. that is -- what do you mean that means? >> i think what it means is they have been talking about raising taxes on people making more than 250,000 were certainly more thhn 1 million. the billion landmark is acceptable. what really will go on is democrats will insist on more than $250,000. republicans may lower their estimates for people who are billionaires for people who make half a million. melissa: to think we will see any real spending cuts, though? >> oh, absolutely. if you go back to simpson bowles, if you talk about democrats, people and harry
to need barack obama there at her side the whole time. jon: right. >> that's a great point. jon: he told those two male senators, mccain and lindsey graham, called them out by name and said, essentially, if you want to criticize her, come after me. [laughter] interesting times in washington. judy miller, kirsten powers, thank you both. >> thank you. jon: be sure to tune in tomorrow, 2:30 eastern time and again at 11:30 p.m. where we will cover the coverage and uncover media bias, or so we hope. and right after "happening now," be sure to tune in to "america live" with megyn kelly. she talked with congressman peter king. he has a lot to say about the administration's story after the benghazi attacks and about the petraeus testimony that took place behind closed doors just this morning. jenna: we'll look forward to that, a lot more clarity on what he's thinking right now. in the meantime, we're going to move on to this part of hurricane sandy. from new jersey to new york, places of worship are struggling to recover after that storm's wrath. normally, a place of worship is a place where peo
't constitute a cover-up. what you see so much is the right trying to raise the political price for obama in this, when there's really no there there. we saw some of that with john mccain who has been trying to get to the bottom of benghazi. it's been so important for him, and yet, he skipped the classified hearing about this. why did he skip it? because his office said that he had a previously scheduled engagement. what was that? a press conference where he dissing the president and get answers. really? >> let's put mccain in perspective here, because he's the point man on capitol hill and really insinuating that there's something, you know not on the up and up going on here with the white house. john mccain is acting out of sour grapes here. that defines his career. think back a decade, but john mccain was ever democrat's favorite republican. why? he ran against george w. bush and he lost, and he didn't take the loss well. when george w. bush made president, john mccain didn't miss a single opportunity to stick it to the bush administration. hard to believe now john mccain in 2001 voted
of an instinct on obama's part to press forward in a second term by reaching out more. >> all right. very good. >> jon meacham. >> have you sent one to the president yet? >> i have not. i should do that. >> you need to do that, jon. you need to sign it and send it to the president. he's a big reader. >> as ever, you're ahead of me. so i'll do that. thank you. >> all right, jon meacham, the new book, "thomas jefferson: the art of power." >>> when we come back, vice chair of the senate intelligence committee, senator saxby chambliss, also "bloomberg's" josh green on the three factors he says will decide the fiscal cliff. and david gregory joins the set as well. there's david. >> all right. >> keep it right here on "morning joe." anncr: some politicians seem to think medicare and... social security are just numbers in a budget. well, we worked hard for those benefits. we earned them. and if washington tries to cram decisions about the future... of these programs into a last minute budget deal... we'll all pay the price. aarp is fighting to protect seniors with responsible... solutions that streng
the discussions of the time lines, what is also clear that it took the obama white house more than a week to publicly say that it was terrorism. so you do have this discrepancy. the cia director saying it was terrorism, really right out of the gate but the white house having this lag of eight days, bill. bill: a specific question here. answer it as best as you can. what do we believe general petraeus thought that anti-muslim film contributed specifically now to what was happening in benghazi? do we know officially yet how he believes the film either played a part or did not play a part? >> we don't know from the readout from lawmakers outside of that hearing this morning but, i would pay particularly attention to what we just heard from the ranking member. several lawmakers have now described how the first attack seemed more disjointed. not very coordinated as these militants overran the consulate. and the second attack on the cia annex seemed to have much more command-and-control. it was far more organized. it had the use of mortars. mortars are an indicator of premeditation. there may w
to get something done. you're absolutely right, tamron. they know they can't have the same sort of disastrous debacle happen that we saw during the debt ceiling fight of 2011. i think that they know they have to work together. president obama feeling emboldened about winning re-election. he's demanding that the bush era tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. that's something that republicans have typically opposed, but today house speaker john boehner seemed to suggest he was open to wiggle room on the issue of taxes or fresh revenues. on the other hand, democrats are willing to compromise on sacred cows, entitlement reform. let's hear more of what the congressional leaders had to say after the meeting. take a listen. >> we should have a goal in terms of how much deficit reduction. we should have a deadline before christmas. we should share some milestones of success so that confidence can build. >> we have the cornerstones of being able to work something out. we're both going to give up some of the things that we know are a problem. >> we're prepared to put revenue on th
to an eagerness or willingness to engage or become involved militarily in that conflict. >> all right, ben. in jerusalem this morning. thanks. >>> coming up later, soledad will be speaking to israel's deputy foreign minister. that's in our 7:00 hour. >>> here at home, president obama will have the four top leaders of congress over to the white house today to begin talks on avoiding the fiscal cliff, which could plunge the u.s. economy back into a recession. both side say there is room for compromise, but at the same time, it appears democrats and republicans may have dug in on their long-held positions concerning tax hikes and spending cuts. jill doherty is in our washington bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> jill, both sides have said they are optimistic about a deal here. they're also not budging on some key issues. >> yeah, i mean, there is some room around the edges, but essentially, and this is the the opening gambit, of course. they're both talking about taxes. the president saying -- and revenue. the president saying that he wants more revenue from the wealthiest ameri
at 10:15 a.m. eastern. speaking on on cnbc thursday, the co-chairs of president obama's deficit commission alan simpson and erskine bowles say you law make are haven't been focused on what's really right for the country. >> leaders who think it would be to their advantage to go off a fiscal cliff. what a wonderful trait that is. that we can win more democrats if we let it go over, we can win more with republicans. this whole game is not about win or lose. it's about how do we make the dems lose and how do we make the republicans lose. people are sick of that and they're ashamed of if. >> if we do get our house in order, the future of america is really bright. and we can compete with the best and brightest. if we don't, we're well on on our way to becoming a second rate power. >> simpson isn't hopeful a deal will be reached before the end of the year. bowles sees a one third chance. on that optimistic note, joining us is ben white from politico. so what's it going to be, economic chaos? >> no, i think i'm at more saa more sanguine. republicans lost seats in the house and senate a
obama and speaker boehner were talking about two years ago, were put back on the table right now, with the house up in conference at speaker boehner allowing him to sign the deal? >> so in other words, 800 billion, revenue increases through growth and through deductions and so forth, i need to loopholes and so forth, i'm not with this vote on his face because you might have to spend tell me about that, brother. i got that figured out. i think house republicans are poised to clean up in that direction. so in other words, are you asking me, is the speaker had out ahead of the pack? i don't think so. i think he's leading the house anyway, and i think he's reflecting where majority of house republicans are? >> for anyone who's just speaker boehner goes into those talks with out full throated support of house republicans conference, that would be wrung? >> that would be wrong. .. the agenda that dave as the committee has laid out over the past two years and let's focus on making the u.s. tax code the most competitive tax jurisdiction of the world. >> let me ask you some of the specifi
downgraded again -- >> ever since the election, i keep trying to just focus right on what we're talking about and that is this high end marginal rates on the 250 and above. obama has at this point said that so much times that, i don't know, he's kind of like drawing a line in the sand there. >> oh, yeah. >> we decided yesterday that was one thing that he is at 250 and 39.6. >> i'm still not convinced it's 39.6%. i do think 250 is the line. >> i don't think we're 35% and trying to find deductions anymore. >> the house was 55% stayed republican. so they have the same claim that their constituents elected them to hold the line on this. i saw comments from dave camp that this game that he keeps playing with, i've got the pen, i'm ready to sign it, it's just delaying. it's a nonstarter according to the people that stopped it the last intwo years. >> today is the first day that they'll all be meeting at the white house. and today is the first day that we don't know what's going to happen. >> the issues are so big in terms of entitlements. the fiscal cliff is one thin, but the issues are so -- the f
